Upcoming Events in Kilkenny
The Gathering: Kilkenny
The Gathering Ireland 2013 is a people’s project. It’s all about you, your family, your neighbours, your sports club, your school, your college - in fact, whatever community or group you belong to – planning special events that will highlight what is great about that community and Ireland as a whole. There are so many ways to get involved; whether it is organizing family or clan gatherings; school or work reunions; sports competitions; community celebrations or business events - it’s about making sure everyone tells their family, friends and connections that 2013 is the perfect time to come to Ireland to join in celebrating the best of what Ireland has to offer. The following are a number of events happening in Kilkenny in 2013. We will update this listing frequently.
Savour Food Festival Kilkenny 2013
23rd Oct 2013 - 28th Oct 2013
2013 is the 7th year of The ‘Savour Kilkenny’ Food Festival - having been established in 2006 by a group of Kilkenny people who are passionate about food; whether growing it, making it, cooking it or eating it. We are also planning a broad range of interesting and informative food events throughout the weekend to enhance the appeal of the festival to a wide audience.
7th Nov 2013 - 10th Nov 2013
Returning for a fourth consecutive year after a successful sold out festival last year. Typically shrouded in mystery and often deliberate confusion, national economic issues can be difficult to digest and grasp. Kilkenomics aims to remove the jargon, political squabbling and elitism involved in economic debate to provide the festival goer with information in as accessible, innovative and entertaining way as possible.

After the horror of the last few years of bank bailouts, spending cuts and being monitored at work by Angela Merkel, festival organisers are prescribing a healthy dose of cautious optimism and laughter.
